  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the yeast, flour, and 2 tbsp granulated sugar. Stir in the warm milk mixture. Cover it and set aside until thickened and foamy, about 15 min.
  3. Combine in the salt and 1/4 cup melted butter. Gradually mix in the remaining 2 cups flour. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Meanwhile, lightly coat a 9- by 13-inch pan with oil. Line the pan with parchment, leaving a 3-inch overhang on the 2 long sides; coat the parchment. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and the remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar.
  5. Punch down the dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until it comes together. Roll into a 9- by 12-inch rectangle. Spread with the 1/4 cup softened butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Starting from the long side, roll the dough into a tight log, pinching the seam to seal.
  6. Slide a long piece of unflavored dental floss under the log of dough about 1 inch from the end. Holding the thread taut, lift the ends and cross to cut off a piece of dough. Repeat to cut twelve 1-inch-thick rolls. Transfer the rolls cut-side up to the prepared pan, spacing them equally. Cover and let rise until the rolls are touching, about 20 minutes.

Walnut and Banana pancakes

  1. Preheat a large frying pan on medium-high. Turn the oven to 200ºF (90 ºC) or warm.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the melted butter, eggs, and milk to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk until combined.
  3. Place a dab of butter into the pan, and swirl it around to coat. Pour or scoop a quarter cup of batter onto the pan. Cook three pancakes at a time. Once you see tiny bubbles start to form, flip the pancakes and continue cooking for 1 minute or until brown. Place the pancakes in the oven to keep warm.
  4. Once all of the pancakes are cooked, wipe the frying pan clean. The temp of the burner should still be set to medium-high from the pancakes.
  5. Place 2 tbsp of butter into the pan and heat until it begins to bubble. Stir in the brown sugar. Add the vanilla and the milk slowly. The sugar will pop and sizzle. Stir until you have a nice thin caramel. Add the sliced bananas and walnuts and coat with the caramel sauce. Continue cooking for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly and the bananas are soft.
  6. Top the pancakes with the bananas foster, and serve warm.

Cookies and cream puff pastry doughnuts

  1. Heat about 3 to 4 inches of oil over medium-low heat in a large potted fitted with a candy thermometer. You want the oil to be about 350 ºF ( 180 ºC ), not higher.
  2. Take the sheets of puff pastry (they will most likely be folded into thirds) and slice them on the seems. Each sheet will be cut into thirds. Once they are separate, brush one side of the cut piece with the beaten egg. Place a second piece on top of that, and brush it with beaten egg. Place the third piece on top. Gently press so they stick together. Repeat with remaining sheets – you should have 4 long rectangles now that have 3 sheets stacked in each.
  3. Using a biscuit or doughnut cutter, cut holes in the stack. You will probably get 3 doughnuts from each (feel free to fry the scraps as they are also delish!). Cut a hole in the centre – I actually use an apple corer for this part, but anything that can cut a hole right in the centre will do.
  4. Fry your doughnuts 2 to 3 at a time (no more as it will lower the oil temp) until they are golden and puffed, about 2 to 3 minutes each. Place on a paper towel to drain excess grease and repeat with remaining pastry.
  5. To make the glaze, whisk together the sugar, cream, milk and extract. The mixture may look lumpy at first but just continue to stir and it will come together – I tend to stir to 3 to 5 minutes. If it’s too thick for dipping, add more milk 1 tablespoon at a time. If it becomes too liquidy, add more sugar 1/4 cup at a time.
  6. Dip each doughnut in the glaze and sprinkle with the crushed cookies. Serve immediately.
  7. Note: you can also make more doughnuts by not stacking the pasty – they will still be delicious, just not as high and flakey.
